2016 Events

The list of 2016 Events are now on the calendar

KENT GROUP WEBSITE

This is not the official Kent Group website. That is at http://www.vttakentgroup.co.uk. This is the old website but I will continue to add anything of interest or relevance.

Bill Hurlow Memorial Ride

John Hunt is organising a Memorial Ride for Bill on Sunday 14th September starting at 10.00am from Hampton Pier, Herne Bay. A social ride of 40 miles to Sandwich and back going via Bill’s house and his workshop. It’s being done on behalf of the Veteran Cycle Club with as many as possible coming on Hurlows. I’ve spoken to Shay Guiles but he will probably be racing but may come. Also spoken to Maurice and Esther. He says they will come on their Hurlow tandem. Ernie Abdella is coming, who used to assemble bikes for Bill.

Contact John at johndehunt@tiscali.co.uk or telephone 07765767200.

June Kent VTTA 25 rescheduled

The re-scheduled Kent VTTA 25 which was shortened on June 6th will now be held on September 21st and will be a counting event for KCA competitions.

VTTA (KentGroup) Wednesday 10 Series 2014 - 2 July

The result of the 2 July event is on the Results page.

As you are no doubt aware we did not run an event in June because of heavy rain, and traffic lights at two places on the circuit.

After some discussion we have decided that in order to accomodate those who were depending on riding the cancelled event to get all 4 qualifying rides in, instead of running our October 15th event as a two-up, we will run it as an individual counting event for the series. I hope that this is acceptable.

Regards Duncan

ESCA 100 CANCELLED

The ESCA 100 has been cancelled as there are long term road works, which will continue beyond the date of the event, on the A22 between Halland and The Shaw roundabouts. It has not been possible to find an acceptable alternative course. In the circumstances, I feel I have no option but to cancel the event, doing so in time for riders to enter the SCCU 100 (details below), the only similar event remaining in Southern England this year.

Whilst unfortunate, this will preserve the reputation we have gained in recent years for running a high quality, friendly event. We look forward to returning in 2015 with a further fine time trial.

The Southern Counties 100 is on Sunday 27 July in West Sussex. Entry costs £8.00 and the Organiser is: Rod Starmer, 23 Tanhouse Road, OXTED, Surrey RH8 9PE. Tel. 01883 713043.

As online entry is not available, you will need to send a paper entry.

We had excellent spring weather for our first event, and quite good turnout for an April event. Times were quite good as well.

Please be aware that the standard times used for this series are the OLD standards going back to 2010. They cannot be used for entry forms.

Next event is on May 7th. Course Q10/33. Leigh Green, Tenterden.

CAROLE GANDY

We understand that Carole fell of her bike in Ham Street during the reliability trial on Sunday and was airlifted to Kings College London. It seems she is ok as she is rumoured to have been giving instruction to John. We obviously send her our best wishes.

Entries to Roger Burchett, Haytor, Stone Street, Lympne, Kent CT21 4JY (include a SAE if you would like a route sheet in advance).
